⚽️ G did not go to soccer on Saturday. I asked a few separate times if she was ready to go and she consistently said “No, I don’t want to do it today, maybe another time” so . . . I spared us both the pain of the prior week and we skipped it. Sunk cost and I’ve decided (thanks to insights from many of you!) that given her age this is not going to sentence her to a gritless future.
We watched C play tennis instead and it was far more pleasant.
(Annabel did go to her soccer – 3rd in her series of 7 – and really enjoyed it again! So that was nice.)
📚 We organized the kids’ bookshelves and craft cabinet on Sunday. Will it stay organized? Probably not. But it was satisfying nonetheless. It’s amazing how they will find toys and activities that had previously gone ignored for months/years when things are no longer a jumble.
🌿 We’ve had some good mornings but nights are still . . a work in progress. Last night was horrific but the kids lost their screen time and I think they (well, the big ones anyway) kind of processed it and learned something. So hopefully today will be better!
✅ Peloton strength (chest / back + core)
❏ Take kids to schoool
❏ Deep Work block (have to edit & resubmit a project to the IRB — working on project with some residents looking at the increase in type 2 diabetes diagnoses during the pandemic. But I haven’t been a PI for any kind of clinical research EVER so I am learning as I go . . .)
❏ Walk (for a break)
❏ Take A to orthodontist (work while there)
❏ 4:30 work meeting
❏ Hopefully a better night with the kids!
